These taxes were all passed only with Democrat votes; no Republicans voted for these taxes —Not one!!!
These taxes were all passed under the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare.
(and you thought it was a healthcare bill, didn’t you)
Here is what happened on January 1, 2014:
Top Medicare tax went from 1.45% to 2.35%
Top income tax bracket went from 35% to 39.6%
Top income payroll tax went from 37.4% to 52.2%
Capital Gains tax went from 15% to 28%
Dividends tax went from 15% to 39.6%
Estate tax went from 0% to 55%
Without control of both the US House of Representatives and the US Senate,
there is little chance for changing any of this.
REMEMBER TO VOTE AND ENCOURAGE YOUR FRIENDS IN TEXAS AND
IN OTHER STATES TO VOTE AS WELL!
